Your Seaside Retreat: Why It’s Important To Have A Beach Rug
Getting yourself a beach rug means that you won’t have to keep patting away those sand particles.
In this article, we at Miss Amara will show you just why you should consider putting this essential item on your ‘to-bring’ list when you head on over to the beach. Here, we’ll even discuss UV protection, general durability, and even proper rug care.
Catching the beach rug wave
Intertwining functionality and aesthetics
Let’s face it: the feeling of sandy toes can be great at first, but no one really wants sand stuck all over their body. With a beach rug, you can make your favourite seaside spot even better by making your own little space where you can freely lounge around and enjoy the views.
Beyond just looking stunning, these rugs have a purpose. Made with materials that can take splashes (think saltwater, spilt margarita, etc.), they truly bring summer magic. Plus, a beach rug isn’t just functional; it’s fashionable as well. It can have serene colours, intriguing patterns, and the ability to fit in with its sandy surroundings.
So if you ever find yourself in need of this essential, give us at Miss Amara a shout, and we’ll have you sorted out with more than just a beach rug and picnic rug selection. Shop now!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I clean sand off my beach rug?
That refreshing sea breeze isn’t just for relaxing and lounging around; you can also use it to clean the sand off your beach rug.
Whether it’s a compact, round beach rug for those solo coastal adventures or perhaps a wide, rectangular beach rug perfect for your sun-kissed crew, give it a good ol’ shake. This will get rid of most of those pesky grains while you’re still near the shore. Just make sure that there aren’t any droplets on top of the water-resistant surface. After all, moisture can cause the sand to stick to anything.
Afterwards, when you make your way back to your car to pack everything up, you can use a trusty stiff-bristled to loosen up the more stubborn specks of sand. This way, you can breathe easy knowing that your trunk or backseat won’t end up looking like a mini desert.
Last but not least, to finish the job, you can whip out your vacuum cleaner and set it to low suction when you get home. Unlike a thin beach blanket or picnic blanket, you can thoroughly give the beach rug fibres a couple of pass-throughs without worrying about creating rips or holes.
There you have it – an ideal post-beach routine to keep the sand at bay.
Do beach rugs have UV protection?
Most beach rugs are generally made with the sun’s rays and UV protection in mind. However, while a UV-resistant rug will give you years of vibrant, unfading joy, no rug is completely sun-proof. This even includes options like a nautical beachfront rug and even similar ones like a colourful seaside carpet and even coastal decor mats.
There are excellent options you can find online, and they’ll typically end up having minimal signs of sun bleaching and colour loss over time.
And if you’re really worried about the patterns getting worn out, you could consider rugs with beige or light brown bases. Compared to their brighter and neon counterparts, these colours aren’t as susceptible to the sun’s rays since they already have that calming, plain look that even matches the sand well.
Remember that a suitable beach rug can withstand days under the sun. You can stress less when you have a quality option and even have more time to think about your own UV protection. Go ahead and pack some sunscreen, a tropical beach picnic rug for yourself, foldable beach area rugs for your friends, and all the other essentials!
Are beach rugs durable for long-term use?
Oh, absolutely! Durability varies, but you can always rely on a beach rug crafted with sturdy and long-lasting materials like PET (no, not your furry friend; it’s polythene terephthalate).
These babies can handle frequent beach adventures with the not-so-occasional splash and exposure to other elements. With robust materials like this, whenever there’s sand build-up from powerful gusts or crust build-up from dried-up salt water, you can hand wash or lightly tumble the beach rug in the washing machine with more peace of mind.
And here’s the real kicker: sand-resistant beach rugs or even woven beachfront carpets can be made from 100% recycled PET fibres. So while you’re out there safely soaking up that vitamin D on your eco-friendly beach rug, take pride in knowing that you’re also doing a bit for Mother Earth.
Now talk about full circle – enjoying Mother Earth’s wonders by the coast while preserving them at the same time.
